How to play HoMM 5 in 4:3, not stretched.
HoMM 5 doesn't support 16:9 natively. While I couldn't find a way to set it to a 4:3 resolution in full-screen, you can run HoMM 5 in windowed mode.

To do this open C:\Users\<Username>\Documents\My Games\Heroes of Might and Magic V\Profiles\<Username>\user.cfg and change "setvar gfx_fullscreen" to 0.

Then set the in game resolution to the best 4:3 for your desktop resolution. For me 1856x1392 works perfect for 2560 x 1440.

Note: Some people may be able to set their graphic drivers so that HoMM 5 runs in full screen with black bars on the sides, maintaining 4:3, however I have a radeon, and I couldn't get it to work.
2nd Note: The expansion "Tribes of the east" does 16:9 natively, so this isn't needed.
